Paperweight artwork

Welcome to the Amazing Mold Putty Blog Hop.  We are so glad you came.  Be sure to hop by and see all the wonderful art work.
I decided to use casting resin for these projects.  Use package directions in measuring amounts and projects will turn out nicely.
This is the first mold I made to form the half-circle paperweight.  As usual use equal parts A & B of molding medium and knead until mix is a uniform color.
Here is a picture of the mold and finished paperweight.  The photo doesn't do the sparkly surface of the globe justice. The casting medium accepted beautifully the colors added making lovely jewel tones on the paperweight.
Maybe a better picture of the globe.  You can see the purples, pinks and greens.
I did not show a mold this time of this antique hand but the process is the same, I used a moss green patina and antique gold to accent the piece.  Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the other artists.
